A double-blind, randomized, three-way, crossover placebo-controlled study was carried out in nine healthy male volunteers to assess the possible antagonism of central nervous system--depressant effects of zolpidem by flumazenil.

Searching for a differential spinal block between dependent and nondependent sides, we evaluated a prospective randomized time-response study of the influence of the duration of lateral decubitus on the spread of hyperbaric local anesthetic solution during spinal anesthesia in 60 patients undergoing lower limb surgery. In a lateral position with the(More)
In a search of a differential spinal block between dependent and nondependent sides, we investigated whether the use of a larger concentration of hyperbaric tetracaine (T) and/or the omission of epinephrine (E) would provide differential spread in patients left for 15 min in the lateral decubitus position. Spinal anesthesia was performed in the lateral(More)
